The Street Photographs of Roger Mayne. 1986. Victoria and Albert Museum. In 1986, Haworth-Booth, the V&A's then director of photography, curated The Street Photographs of Roger Mayne. 270mm x 210mm, 88pp. Roger Mayne is one of Britain’s major photographers and this is the most complete book of his work yet published. Mayne’s great period was the 1950s and 60s, when he photographed in one street (Southam Street). Children feature frequently in both his rural and urban imagery. Mayne’s first international exhibition to showcase his work was Otto Steinert's Subjective Photography 2 at Saarbrücken, Germany (1955). Within six months, he had a solo show at George Eastman House in Rochester, New York state, to which he returned with the group exhibition ‘Photography’ at Mid-Century. This prompted the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London to mount his work (1956), and both the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Art Institute of Chicago to start acquiring his work.
